BIRMINGHAM, Ala.June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Centrix Pharmaceutical, Inc., a privately-held specialty pharmaceutical company focused on Pediatrics and Women's Health, announces a promotional agreement with CutisPharma, Inc., a Woburn, Massachusetts based company. The partnership will include the promotion of FIRST® - Progesterone VGS, vaginal suppository compounding kits.
Beginning early July, 2011, Centrix Pharmaceutical sales representatives will promote FIRST® - Progesterone VGS compounding kits from CutisPharma, Inc. in physician offices, clinics, and hospitals who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology in addition to retail pharmacies nationwide.
About FIRST® - Progesterone VGS compounding kit
The product line includes FIRST® - Progesterone VGS 25, 50, 100, 200, and 400. The kits are made for one patient and include pre-weighed progesterone, and suppository base, and a unique, patented disposable suppository mold for preparation, dispensing, and storage of the suppositories, all in one unit that increases patient compliance, and ease of use.
FIRST® - Progesterone VGS saves dispensing time, and can be compounded by the pharmacist while the patient waits, increasing customer satisfaction. Using FIRST® VGS kits, the pharmacist can compound a prescription for 30 vaginal suppositories 4 to 5 times faster than those prepared in the conventional way using a metal suppository mold or polystyrene shells. A single NDC number assigned for the entire kit facilitates the third party reimbursement process, and reduces audit-related adjustments.
